“Outraged and Disgusted” Congressman Introduces Legislation To Bar TSA From Groping Children
“I am so furious with them I can’t even see straight”
April 15, 2011
A US Congressman says he is furious at the treatment of minors by the TSA and has introduced legislation to completely outlaw any form of pat-down on a child by security personnel without the express consent and presence of a parent.
In a letter to TSA head John Pistole this week, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah described the treatment of six year old Anna Drexel at the hands of a TSA officer in New Orleans as a “shocking violation” of TSA protocol.
In a video that quickly went viral on the internet, the confused and tearful young girl was subject to an enhanced pat down, which included an officer putting her hands inside the child’s pants.
